I have lived in my present home for almost two years. Over this time, every now and then, a handful of strange things have happened.
It started one night when I put my son to bed. My son loved Thomas the Tank Engine and he had this particular Thomas toy that had a button on the top, when you pushed it Thomas would speak. Anyway, this particular evening I had put my son to bed as normal (he is a good lad and stays in bed and goes straight to sleep) and I went downstairs. After about half an hour, I heard this toy speak and a split second later my son started crying. I raced upstairs, my son was in his bed crying saying the toy had gone off on its own. The toy was on his train track on the other side of his room.
A few months later, I had just got into bed and after around 5 minutes, I heard one of my son's old toys going off in the loft. No one had been up there in months. It was a train (again) that a child could sit on or push along, with lots of buttons that make train sounds etc. It was going off continually until my boyfriend went up there and took the batteries out! Just to clarify that nothing had fallen onto one of the buttons and the train itself was upright with nothing touching it.
Nothing happened after that for a long time. Then one day I was sat reading in the living room when I saw (in my peripheral vision) something walk behind my son's pop up play tent. I naturally got up and look behind the tent, but nothing was there.
Two weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night and I could hear really light footsteps (like a child's) walking around. I lay there for a minute expecting my son to come in my room, he didn't. I asked if he was alright and heard nothing, so I got up to check on him and he was fast asleep in his bed.
Last week, I woke up (again, in the middle of the night) to hear my son's drawers opening and closing. I got up to check on him, again he was sound asleep in bed.
Two days later, I was looking at my mobile, when I saw someone (in my peripheral vision again) walk past my kitchen window. My garden is enclosed with fencing all around. I checked outside and no one was there. There is no where to hide in my garden as it's quite small and bare because of winter. What I saw looked similar if not the same as to what I saw in my living room. It appeared fairly small in height and was a rusty brownish colour. I'm not sure if this is a child or something else. Does anyone have any ideas please?
